The postcard options in my hometown of Toronto have been pretty slim for years. Occasionally, I’ll spot a gem in an unexpected spot.
I do save money but not being tempted often here by postcard purchases – as my recent trip to Vancouver set me back at least $25 (the highest one-time acquisition total ever). Recently, however, my local hunting has been more rewarding, such as these two recent prizes found at a downtown pharmacy:
I love the flora framing the snapshots of Toronto. Although, I can assure you that nowhere would one find a garden of daffodils positioned this way (the shot would be taken from Toronto Island).
The read maple leaf motif on the first postcard is also quite impactful if incongruous against the backdrop of the highrises of Toronto, the big bad, – the leaf motif emphasizes Toronto’s prime position in this great dominion of Canada!
